Dometic Trim Line Awning

We camp mostly on the coast..........we have I guess the Dometic Trim Line Awning on our 2516g. How much wind can these handle if say I were to stand the outer poles straight up and use guide lines staked into the ground?

any awning is a risk to leave up .. during the day when your away ... so dont go there .. retract and relax.
nothing worse than coming back to the campsite and seeing the awning flipped over backwards on the roof of the trailer, with all the mountin screws pulled out of the sidewalls .. been there ... dumb that .. and that was on a flagstaff popup .. not the same i know .. but something i will never forget.
